In 2005, Wilshire Works developed cleanable ribbon pulls to replace traditional string, nylon cords and problematic plastic pull cords on nurse calls and overbed lights.
Over 1500 facilties have chosen Sanipull cleanable pulls to improve hygiene and help reduce facility acquired infection rates. The Toronto East General Hospital published a report in 2006 that listed Sanipull as one of a handful of implemented infection control improvements that helped to reduce their facility's MRSA and C-Diff rate by up to 50%1.
Sanipull’s innovative design protects fixtures from over-force pull damage, resulting in expense reductions which can, in the medium term, pay for the entire cost of the product and reduce maintenance work!
An optional anti-strangulation / anti-ligature Sanipull ribbon modification helps to prevent harm or death in the case of entanglement or if a Sanipull were to be used as an instrument of suicide or violence against another person.
